coming up tomorrow night. jim zorn is hoping for perfection. redskins fans, i think, would settle for a touchdown or two from starting offense. the head coach listens to what the fans and pundits say about his team. and him. but he doesn't always like it. he knows, however, winning fixes everything. in part two of my conversation with jim zorn we discussed a variety of topics. including his job security. and his running back, clinton portis. one thing they talk about about with clinton, i mean, 9,200 yards ain't too shabby. a lot of people say he lacks that burst to go the distance. do you agree with that? >> well, he -- you know, he's not the guy that has the four-two speed. once he breaks the line of scrimmage. but i don't think that he's -- i don't think, you know, we are not sitting here brooding over him getting 30 yards. are we? and he has had a lot of care zblees what makes him so dom in an and when you guys watched him on film, it is -- is he a wow player? >> i think he is a wow player. he probably does more things to reek havoc on an offensive line walking scheme be most
